voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president oba

by the housing crisis. there's a lot of disillusioned voters who voted for president obama four years ago. i think president obama is just off muff with enough groups that were part of his coalition to win florida four years ago that it could erase the margin he had four years ago. he is off some with hispanics from where he was four years ago. he is off some with the youth from where he was four years ago. he is off some with jewish voters from where he was four years ago. he is off with white voters, and he is off with seniors from where he was four years ago. i think it may just be enough to give mitt romney florida on tuesday night, but, again, it really is a very close race. >> maria, let's talk about the states for a moment. on monday president obama wraps up the campaign with stops in ohio, wisconsin, and iowa. is that the strategy? i mean, he wins those three, right, and the rest of the swing states don't even matter anymore? >> well, i think that that is certainly what the obama campaign is focused ownering but what's so interesting about the slight lead and the slight
